With Crimson Blossom off the needles it's time to focus on Fair entries. I figured it was a good idea to get a few of the small, quick ones out of the way. I planned to knit Chouette first. I have some pink bulky alpaca blend in the stash. But sadly, I don't have 6mm dpns. So Chouette has to wait until I see Mom and steal a set of hers.
Instead, I decided to make a baby bonnet. I had almost a full skein of Twisted Top Cat left from April Come She May. Normally I wouldn't knit baby stuff in Cashmere... but this is a bonnet... how much is it really going to need to be washed.
And the subtle colour variations of the dye, stitch definition and softness of the yarn are extra points in my favour come judging time.
I couldn't find a pattern that was exactly what I wanted, so.... I'm designing one!
